On Thursday, January 29, 2009, Generations at Botsford members were treated to a bit of local Farmington history…the story of the Michigan Hospital School! The campus which once served as a Farmington base for this hospital is now Botsford Commons Senior Community. Two of the three original hospital buildings remain — the Albert Kahn-designed buildings. The hospital dates back to 1919, and finds its origins in the late 1800s in a woman by the name of Blanche Van Leuven Browne. Original photographs, discovered in recent years in storage spaces, were available for viewing — and what a story they told!
